Recipe: Roasted Garlic Guacamole with help-yourself garnishes

by Rick Bayless

Rick Bayless, author of  “Fiesta at Rick’s,” knows all about how to throw a great fiesta, or party, and a key part of any great fiesta is the food. “I like to welcome guests with this guacamole bar,” he says. “I start off with a basic guacamole made with roasted garlic and set out bowls of toppings so everyone can customize each bite.”

Roasted Garlic Guacamole Recipe

Yield: 4 cups guacamole, for 16 servings

Active Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

6 Large cloves garlic, unpeeled
6 Ripe medium avocados
1/2 Cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro, loosely packed
2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice, plus more if desired
1 Teaspoon salt

3/4 Cup Mexican queso fresco,
queso anejo, salted pressed farmer’s cheese, firm goat cheese, mild feta or Romano, finely crumbled or grated
3/4 Cup toasted pumpkin seeds (see Tip)
3/4 Cup sliced pickled jalapenos
1/2 Cup crumbled crisp-fried bacon or 3/4 cup coarsely crumbled chicharron (Mexican crisp-fried pork rind)
1 16-ounce bag large, sturdy tortilla chips

To prepare guacamole:
Place unpeeled garlic in a small dry skillet over medium heat; cook, turning occasionally, until soft and blackened in spots, 10 to 15 minutes. Cool, then slip off the skins; finely chop. Scoop avocado flesh into a large bowl. Add the garlic, cilantro and lime juice to taste. Coarsely mash everything together. Season with salt. Transfer to a serving bowl and place plastic wrap directly on the surface of the guacamole. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

To set up the guacamole bar:
Scoop garnishes into small serving bowls and put the chips in a large basket or bowl. Encourage guests to spoon a little guacamole on a chip and top with garnishes that appeal.

To make ahead:
Cover and refrigerate the guacamole (Step 1) up to 1 day.

Tip: To toast pumpkin seeds, place in a small dry skillet and cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes.
